Focus on Housing for Older Adults

In August, Dr. Terri Lewinson of the School of Social Work was named as a recipient of a prestigious Hartford Foundation research grant. Dr. Lewinson will be using the grant support to support her research in the field of geriatric social work, with a specific focus on older adults who live in extended stay hotels. Congratulations to Dr. Lewinson!
